One of the things I have had to get used to being married is sleeping with someone else next to me. Quin is particularly interesting. Just like a little kid, he doesn't want to go to bed, he is afraid he will miss something. Once he does go to bed, he is asleep before his head hits the pillow. Even if he tries to stay awake so we can talk he falls asleep mid conversation. This usually results in some interesting conversations because his dreams get intertwined in the conversation. He has even gotten mad at me for some thing I have "said" during one of these sleep/conversations.

The other night Quin and I were watching 7 pounds with Will Smith. In the movie Will Smith starts fixing a machine for another character. Unbeknownst to me Quin had fallen asleep. Our conversation went like this:

Me: oh yeah, he went to MIT to be an engineer so he can probably fix that for her.
Quin: Yeah and he is Jewish and naked.
Me: What?!?!
As far as I knew the movie hadn't mentioned that he was Jewish and he definitely was not naked.
I then realize that Quin had fallen asleep. One can only wonder what he was dreaming!

A big weekend

Quin, Cameron, and I traveled North this year for Thanksgiving. I hate being so far away because it means that we have to spend two days of our holiday traveling instead of spending them relaxing with our families. It's worth it, we love being with our families. This trip was extra special though, there were lots of big events and firsts for Cameron.

~It was his first car ride. We weren't sure how well he would travel especially for so long, but he did great, he slept most of the way there.

~It was his first Thanksgiving, except his came a few hours after everyone else ate and was a little milky.

~He met many new family members: cousins, aunts, uncles. Lots of new people to look at. When his cousin Kate saw him she said "It so pretty" then she realized her mistake because he was a boy and corrected herself, "It so handsome." Ha! We're not sure who was more excited to see him, there was some serious talk about about who was going to keep him, but in the end we won.

~He was given a name and a blessing(for my non-LDS friends that is kinda like a christening). My mom made a super cute little blessing outfit and since we were so far from our own ward, we held it at Quin's parent's house. We would have loved to have lots of friends and family there, but it was really neat and sacred to have such an intimate setting.

~He got his first haircut. We have probably heard "look at that hair" a few hundred times. Cameron came out needing a haircut. I wasn't quite ready for my baby to get his first haircut (I think I was like 3 before I had one and I did it myself), but I wanted his Aunt Mimi to cut it instead of some stranger, so we did it while we were up there. She cut probably an inch off the sides and back and trimmed up the top. She did a good job, he looks like a little boy now instead of a little baby. I miss his crazy baby hair, looking at pictures makes me a little sad.

We were so sad to leave, but we had a great and memorable weekend!
